time from a foreign policy standpoint to have petraeus out. scandals that are taking key players out of afghanistan, syrian discussions. country that the president has a lot going on right now. >> we were joking coming in that you have to stare at your blackberry because every five minutes something new happens. the one familiar aspect of the david petraeus scandal is that he had an affair. everything else about this story is weird, in the washington post. >> i was going to see skyfall this weekend. i'm going to stay at home and read the sunday times. this is totally bizarre. there's so much that we don't know, this fbi investigator. not just four people. there's an fbi and cia, infa infatuated with jill kelley >> let's get this straight. this guy works at the fbi, becomes infatuated. she gets shirtless photos of him allegedly. she goes to him and says i'm getting these weird e-mails. >> he takes this matter into a federal investigation you have to wonder. an fbi investigation if not for this one agent's involvement and especially him going to congress as a whistle blower saying it w
to the president of the united states because david petraeus was a key part of the president's foreign policy team. i'm not talking about guilt or innocence. i'm saying he's under a cloud. i have great admiration for david petraeus. i urged him to run for president. i worked with him. he's a tremendous patriot. but once he came under this scope of the investigation, they had to have -- they should have notified the president because david petraeus was involved in some of the most sensitive negotiations around the world. >> the "wall street journal" is reporting as you know that holder, the attorney general, knew about it in september. >> first of all, i think it should have been earlier than that because this investigation started a few months before that but assume it's september. at that stage, the attorney general should have immediately gone to the president. it's the president that runs foreign policy, not the attorney general. >> do you think politics was at play here, not wanting to do this before the election? >> that could have been. if that's the case it was a real dereliction of duty be
with our foreign policy. >> now, governor, senator mccain last month said -- well, let me let you hear what he said. this is amazing to me. >> it's very clear this was a colossal failure that cost the lives of four brave young americans. there has not been an intelligence fail like this in my lifetime and i have been around for a long time. >> there has not been an intelligence fail like this in his lifetime? what about 9/11? what about the iraq war with weapons of mass destruction where 3,000 americans died? what's he talking about? >> four americans are obviously four too many. but because our intelligence system broke down we went to war in iraq and over 3,000 americans died. how can he dare contrast those two? the thing that bugs me about this is there was a potential screw-up. we didn't have the right security in place in benghazi. susan rice had nothing to do with it. she wasn't in the chain of command. she didn't have any responsibility at all. all she did was go on television and, as you said, give the report that the cia had given to her. how can they pick on susan rice? why not wa
. we have so many important issues ahead of us in american foreign policy from the war to iran to north korea to global economic crisis to the euro debt crisis the arab revolutions to securing our embassies. one thing we haven't talked about, i hope that congress will fully fund embassy security. that's been lost in this debate about benghazi. the real issues to me are, how do we strengthen security at embassies, how do we republicans and democrats to give full funding to secure embassies and consoulates and how do we go after the terrorist group in libya that killed ambassador stevens and his colleagues? it's a partisan time in our country, unfortunately. >> thanks very much, nick burns. next, israel's ambassador to the u.s., michael oren joining us.

't believe in state's rights. how do ings evolve for the gop? >> conservative on foreign policy and military policy and on social issues we would be libratarian. and i think that party could be a majority party. i think if we were run that go way this time. i think we win by 4 or 5%. >> what about the tea party? they decided they wanted pure candidates. your party lost races that they may have had control of the sen ta tall. >> i think what we should try to do is figure out what are your priority issues. the reason it got established is big taxes. and then a certain amount of flexibility on foreign issues and allow people to disagree with each other. if you agree with me on eight out of ten issues you are my friend. look at the map. we have to win by one or two states and when you get a good campaign against you. then you lose. >> i want to ask you do you think mitt romney has a place in the national stage? >> we don't do that. >> i heard a lot of rejection today. >> the day after, but a year later they have a role in the party. >> mitt romney ran a very, very good race. he has a lot of terr
reason for failures on foreign policy, regulating the financial markets and we had a president who came in and often in unpopular ways at first, basically said government has an important role to play in all of these markets, the insurance market, the car market, small business, tax reform and he went and did that when it was unpopular. and by the end of the race, we had a substantive debate about it. and what we see here i think is an endorsement of an obamaism. of an approach here that 00:30:embrace s government to do things for people. >> all the political math we know says the president can't be re-elected with unemployment up near 8%. it cannot happen. it staes an extraordinary campaign to be able to do that. >> i think that is true. on the other hand it is very hard to unseat incumbent presidents. about 70% of incumbent presidents are re-elected. ronald reagan was re-elected in a land slide suggesting there was some room for unemployment to be higher. the president did run a fantastic campaign. they understand america as it exists today. republicans tried to convince themselves th
role in helping guide america's national policy and foreign policy. >> reporter: cotton, a law school graduate was an infantry officer with the 101st airborne division. nine veterans from these wars have just won congressional seats, seven republicans and two democrats. >> this is definitely historical. there are going to be more iraq and after gaffe stan veterans. >> reporter: seth lynn says iraq and afghanistan veterans may finally have found their political voice. >> and i think a lot of people have come home, really established themselves in their communities, become leaders, you know, in business, in public service, within their communities and have now been having a lot more success running for office. >> reporter: despite the influx of 9/11-era veterans into congress, the number of veterans overall is declining. both the house and senate will have fewer veterans this year than last. democrat tammy duckworth lost both her legs in iraq. she has just won a seat in congress. she believes the downturn is a moment in history. >> the giants, the lions of the world war ii generation st
to get weapons of mass destruction. >> so the graham rule is it's okay for highly placed foreign policy players in an administration to be wrong about something they say on tv involving intelligence as long as other people are wrong, too, especially people in other countries. in his nakedly political and entirely dishonorable prosecution of susan rice today, john mccain actually said this -- >> we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. >> he obviously meant to add except condoleezza rice and anyone in any republican administration. we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. really? from the guy who said this -- >> that old beach boy song bomb iran, bomb, bomb, bomb -- anyway. >> yeah, anyway. we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. john mccain responsible for what we say and what we do? the guy who was trying to get sarah palin important is in as vice president of the united states, a heart beat away from the presidency. john mccain did that. it was the greatest act of sheer irresponsibility i have ever seen in a presidential candidate. here is somet
a secretary of state, john bolton. we are not bringing dick cheney back. we are not going to have a foreign policy shop stocked with architects of the iraq war. we are not going to do it. we had the chance to do that if we wanted to do that, as a country. and we said no, last night, loudly. now, to be fair. if you are a conservative or if you are rooting for the republicans, a few things did go your way. republicans did not lose that senate seat that they might have lost in arizona. jon kyl's old senate seat goes to another republican, to jeff flake. also, republicans did not lose that other senate seat they might have lost in nevada, the old jon ensign seat that was given to dean heller. it stays with him. and while president obama carried 28 states last time, he carried 26 or 27 states this time, depending on how florida goes. that means republicans did lose everything else, but got back indiana and also north carolina. so it was not a totally hopeless night for republicans. also, hey, remember the crazy thaddeus mccotter seat in michigan, where thaddeus mccotter screwed up and they had t
in recent foreign policy history is on tv defending david petraeus without actually addressing the real problems with david petraeus' record. those are the fact that he manipulated the white house into escalating afghanistan, he ran a campaign in iraq that was brutally savage, included arming, the worst of the worst. shiite death squads, sunni militiamen and go back to the training that also had problems. to me, the questions of honor and integrity, i was raising those earlier. a number of other journalists covering petraeus were raising those concerns. you might not get that from someone at barbara starr at cnn who is essentially a spokesperson for the pentagon in many ways. so i think i just want to step back and have my piece because even the way the scandal is being covered is so different than how usual sex scandals are being covered where they hammer the guy. now everyone is saying oh, my god, he just went to the cia, how could he be, you know, he was susceptible to being seduced by this woman. give me a break. he has all his allies coming out to defend him where paula broadwell i
a successful foreign policy that was supposedly from the beginning his weakness, but which has turned out to be one of his real strengths. so, unfortunately, all of this -- this commitment to our patriotic togetherness and unity that we will govern this country across the aisles with bipartisan attention is being foiled, input president obama showed, as you said, rare, if you will, anger, a flash of real support for susan rice, and indicating he's up to the battle. that should he choose her to become part of his cabinet, he will put her forth with the full expectation that she will be vented in the ways she should be -- vetted, excuse me, in the way she should be without that rancor. you can be assure, the rancor will be following if she's nominated. this po >> lynn, you were there in the east room when the president was speaking. can you recall him being so intense, so passionate about an issue as he was then? >> that was a special moment, being in the room, you could feel the intensity. i was sitting a few feet from him. you could -- you could -- that steely gaze that he really was sett

. is this shaping the president's foreign policy, without him directing it? are there real effects to all of this, do you think, worldwide? >> at this point, no, i don't think that. and one of the reasons is that the foreign policy really, a lot of it comes directly from the white house. there is a lot of control by this administration over what the direction is. after all, the president is one who is in charge and secretary clinton certainly has been very much a part of creating some of that, and carrying it out. but i think you have to say that at this point to say that when she leaves or somebody else comes in that the policy changes -- no, don't think that will happen. >> all right, jill dougherty, coming to us from washington. thank you, appreciate it, jill. >>> happening right now, we're getting word the two snowboarders stranded on mount rainier in washington have been rescued. we're getting in live pictures. find out exactly what happened and how they were rescued. stay with us coming up. ♪... ♪... choose the perfect hotel how they'll live tomorrow. for more than 116 years, ameriprise
especially in foreign policy. i know susan rice. i've known her a long time. she's honorable, experienced, dedicated. and i got those intelligence briefs in the morning whenever we were dealing with the crisis. >> when you were u.n. ambassador? >> when i was u.n. ambassador. you act and say what your intelligence briefing said at the time. but then those intelligence briefings change because there's an ongoing investigation of what happened in benghazi. >> she went on the five sunday talk shows five days or so after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans. and what she said was not accurate. but she insists she was just repeating what she had been briefed by the intelligence community. >> that's the information she had. and i think just apart from that, wolf, a president should have the right to nominate who he wants for secretary of state. >> but the senate has the right to confirm or reject, right? >> i know. but the candidates if it's senator kerry, susan rice, ambassador rice, two excellent candidates, i mean, i don't thin
